An Encouraging Story Of A Mother Who Turned Her Loss Into A Way To Help Others
Mar 6, 2015
Realizing that Dax could still inspire great things even after he was gone, Julie started fundraising for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital - a nonprofit hospital that provides free medical care for children, as well as meals, housing and transport for them and their family members.
Julie Locke has had to endure something no parent should. For the majority of his 29 months among us, her son Dax was in the hospital being treated for a rare form of cancer. Ultimately, Dax lost his battle with the illness, but not before inspiring thousands of people. Knowing that he may not get to see Christmas, his parents decorated for it right around Halloween. Friends and neighbors joined in to show support, and the story quickly picked up and became a movement.
